Last week, while justifying Apple’s refusal to allow Flash player on iPhone/iPad, Steve Jobs wrote– “ New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too) ”.

Those of you have heard of HTML 5 will know it’s a new version of HTML and XHTML being promoted by Google and Apple in a bid to move the web away from proprietary technologies like Flash, Silverlight and JavaFX. It makes HTML more powerful by adding new elements like video and audio. Key benefit is that web developers can do this using JavaScript directly in HTML 5 without relying on technologies like Flash or Silverlight.

Multimedia experiences growing stronger in HTML5

Aptara

The movement away from using Flash in both internal and external content by businesses has been slowed by one important factor: This language has been seen as the primary distribution method for rich multimedia such as audio and video. Viewers respond well to messages conveyed through more than text and static images, and a well-placed video clip or audio file can transform an informational document, giving it a compelling new purpose and improving its appeal.

LearnUpon

Adobe Flash technology has helped support the delivery of online multimedia content for nearly two decades. Three popular eLearning formats are also largely dependent on Flash technology for their delivery medium: SCORM, Tin Can (xAPI), and video. Flash has been a useful technology for developers working with a broad range of online content types for many years – 20 maybe?

Flash currently optional, soon to be obsolete

Aptara

Old technology is not like outdated elements in other spaces. When technologies grow old, they simply turn into liabilities, riddled with operability and security problems. There are still some elements of the Internet running on Flash technology.
